Frequently Asked Questions

* For Kap-Lind’s engraving of Hand-Cast Metal, Pewter & Copper Products Only

A: Times New Roman Filled on all Hand-Cast Metal urns and Times New Roman on all Pewter and Copper. Upper and Lower case lettering. All wording is appropriately sized for each urn. For a single name and date engraving, we recommend all upper case lettering. Script font is always upper and lower case lettering. For any order without font specification we will use our standard default fonts.

A: That really depends on what product you choose. For Metal Hand-Cast Metal urns we recommend any filled font. Times New Roman Filled (Our standard default font in Upper and Lower Case Lettering), Monotype Corsiva or Lucida Filled are our favorites.

A: Gravoxide is a chemical that is applied over the engraving area and creates a darkening of the letters or symbols. Gravoxide can be used on Hand-Cast Metal (strongly recommended), Pewter and Copper urns only. Gravoxide is not available on any Black urn. Kap-Lind will NOT apply Gravoxide unless requested.

A:  Only on the band of the Pewter 601 urns (limited text i.e. name/date).

A:  We have an extensive library of symbols.  Custom badges and symbols that are not currently in our library, please contact Kap-Lind.  Additional charges may apply.  Most Clip Art images can be also be used. Kap-Lind does not offer photo engraved images at this time.

A:  We have the ability to size our lettering to fit most urns.  The more text, the smaller the lettering will appear.  We highly recommend requesting a proof for large text requests.
